    At the El Zapote ejido in the “Sierra de Huautla” Biosphere Reserve in the state of Morelos, Mexico, twelve Quercus magnoliaefolia Née trees were selected and their above-ground biomass determined. The proposed allometric model was expressed as: B = 0.0345 * DBH2.9334, where B is biomass (kg) and DBH is diameter at breast height (cm), with a coefficient of determination (R2= 0.98; P

    Keyworks: Allometric equations, Quercus magnoliaefolia, above-ground biomass, wood specific density.
